Spell check within Internet Explorer

 

Greetings,

I subscribe to PC World magazine's Daily News emails and found them today recommending a great little add-on for spell-checking within Internet Explorer. It's working great for me as I type this message (i.e., I see the word kuft underlined with a suggestion that maybe I meant to type tuft and the option to add kuft to the spell checker). Since you're reading this, you may well also write messages within your browser. So for the Internet Explorer browser users, check out and maybe download and install Speckie as I've done:

Interesting

What version of IE? 9?

This has been native in FF for ages now. It's great!

Spelling check has been part of the Google tool bar for IE

Spelling check has been part of the Google tool bar for IE for a long time and I have been using it for years and between that and the Google AutoFill they have to be two of my favorite tools.

I am using tinyspell in typing this reply (and it just notified me that "tinyspell" is not yet in its dictionary).

The reason I like tinyspell is that it is a "portable" app - meaning that it does not have to be "installed" and makes no changes to your registry and can run from a flash drive (so it could be used if you were using some other computer)

It Sounds Like A Good Idea, But..

I haven't used IE since Netscape 2.01 many, many years ago. Since then, all my several computers have the IE shortcuts deleted because I use FireFox (and ThunderBird) instead.

Weird

This has been in Firefox so long that I just kind of assumed it was in IE as well. I have to use IE on my work computer (although this bootleg laptop I also use at work is running Firefox) but, other than being forced to use IE for work, I've been using Firefox for a long time. I'm pretty surprised to hear that IE hasn't had built-in spell checking.

You forgot a period at the end of your sentence.

ispell

I've been using ispell for a few years now with no problems until recently. Every now and then I go to use ispell and get an "exception error" and it won't check any spelling.
